AI Aphorisms

As we begin to invite home assistants and AIs into our homes, we should provide feedback on how their interaction with us could be improved.

Name your own AI

If an AI is to become part of your home or life, you should be able to give it a name that works for you. Hey Google, Siri or Alexis are branding gone bad.

An AI should be seen not heard

AIs should aim to speak as little as possible. They cannot carry on a conversation and should not attempt to be conversational. If at all possible, they should not respond to requests, but instead just attempt to fulfill the request.
